There’s just something about funfetti cake that makes people real happy.  I’m totally ok with the box version, but I’ll take any opportunity I can get to use my mixer and this recipe looked kinda fun.  In honor of my blog’s 1 year!  xo

Funfetti Cake

  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cup sugar
  • 4 whole eggs
  • 2 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 jar rainbow jimmies (sprinkles)

Preheat oven to 350° F.  Grease (2) 8 in. round cake pans and set aside.  Cream butter and sugar in electric mixer bowl until fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.  Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add half of the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.  Add the milk.  Once mixed, add remaining dry ingredients.  Fold in assorted sprinkles.  Pour into (2) cake pans evenly.  Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Let cool.

Vanilla Buttercream

  • 2 sticks of butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of milk, as needed

Cream butter in electric mixer bowl until completely smooth and creamy.  With the mixer on low speed, add in powdered sugar slowly.  Gradually increase mixer speed and add vanilla, then beat for 2-3 minutes, scraping down sides and bottom of the bowl.  If frosting is too thick, add milk 1 teaspoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.  If too thin, add sugar gradually until it thickens.  Frost cakes and top with sprinkles!
